Adelaide Strikers 8 for 153 (Mack 50) beat Brisbane Heat 8 for 135 (Redmayne 65) by 18 runs
An excellent display in the field, highlighted by one of the most extraordinary rebound catches, earned the Strikers victory as the Heat wasted a solid platform in their chase. Georgia Redmayne, with a WBBL career-best, and Maddy Green added 79 in 10 overs for the first wicket but from there they could not form another substantial partnership and the asking rate got out of control. Darcie Brown was superb with ball, removing the dangerous Jess Jonassen, and produced a superb return from the deep to run out Nadine de Klerk. However, nothing could outshine the catch by Tahlia McGrath who ran around from mid-on and dived full length to grab the ball after Madeline Penna had parried the chance from Amelia Kerr above her head at midwicket. With the bat the Strikers fell short of what they should have got after Katie Mack and the in-form Laura Wolvaardt added 75 in 10 overs. Mack departed the ball after reaching her fifty and Wolvaardt’s dismissal in the 17th over saw the Strikers lose 5 for 10 before a couple of crucial late boundaries by Sarah Coyte.
